Technische Universität Dresden - Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Institute of Circuits and Systems (IEE)
The TU Dresden is one of eleven German universities that were identified as an “excellence university”. TUD has about 36.500 students and almost 5319 employees, 507 professors among them, and, thus, is the largest university in Saxony, today.
Having been committed to sciences and the engineering before the reunification of Germany, TU Dresden now is a multi-discipline university, also offering humanities and social sciences as well as medicine.
Research Associate / PhD Student / Postdoc
Since 2012, Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) is a part of the elected group of eleven Universities of Excellence in Germany. Furthermore, the Dresden location contains "Silicon Saxony" the largest microelectronics cluster in Europe.
In the frame of the programme “Automation and Networked Traffic”, funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, within the project ATLAS60G for developing a novel positioning system for car based on radar technology, the Chair of Circuit Design and Network Theory (CCN) within the Institute of Circuits and Systems (IEE) has, subject to resources being available, a job vacancy for a Research Associate / PhD Student / Postdoc
(subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L) starting at the next possible date and initially limited until 30.11.2020. The period of employ-ment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz – WissZeitVG). The position offers the chance to obtain further academic qualification (e.g. PhD / habilitation thesis).
The Chair of Circuit Design and Network Theory is a leading researcher in the area of integrated circuit design and is dedicated to the design and modelling of highly efficient real-time analogue and mixed-signal circuits. During the last decade, the chair achieved several world records and awards. The chair is led by Prof. Ellinger, who received the Vodafone Innovation Award in 2016, and contributes with their expertise in the areas of wireless communication, positioning and radar systems, millimeter wave circuits and mixed-signal and control circuits to numerous national and international research projects.
Within the project ATLAS60G, a positioning technology will be developed which can track vehicles in real time. Applications include self-parking cars in areas without GPS coverage such as parking decks and underground car parks, where a positioning accuracy of only few centimeters is necessary.
